Tekken 7 Josie Rizal Dispute


Tekken is one of my favorite fighting franchises, so when the first article I read in the morning is this, it makes me a bit uneasy and upset. 

I met, as in watched the reveal trailer for, Josie Rizal yesterday and loved her fighting style. I'm even thought of adding her as one of my faves and I haven't even played with her yet. That's how much I like the character, even knowing so little. The same way I did Alisa, Lili, Larz and all my other favorite characters. Now at the time of watching I didn't know she was Filipino until I read the article by Kotaku.

So when I see it being said that she isn't authentic enough to be considered Filipino I think to myself REALLY. She's a character in a game that's based of a Filipino national hero. She's wearing the country's color and is using their fighting style but that's not enough. She has to be more aesthetically Filipino to actually count as being Filipino and to correct any misconceptions she maybe portraying. 

My take, there is nothing wrong with the character. Why fix what's not broken. Someone will just find some other fault with her the minute something changes.

Final Fantasy XV - Death Caster Spell Trailer

Final Fantasy is known for their powerful spells among other things. Death is one such spell. This iteration of the powerful one-hit KO spell, when it hits, does it abit different. From the trailer you can see Noctis equip the Ring of the Lucil. I'm not sure if this is same ring from the KingsGlaive movie but it seems to be going by the items description.

This Death Spell literally sucks the life out of enemies until the die in a puff of smoke. The drawback to this spell, is that it leaves you completely open to attack and takes some time to cast. I completely understand for limitations on such a powerful spell and can't wait to get my hands of this game. November cannot come soon enough.
